    Law Would Require Solar On New Homes And New Roofs

    St. Petersburg proposal would require solar panels on new homes and major roof repairs

    Craig Pittman, August 30, 2017 (Tampa Bay Times)

    “…[The St. Petersurg, FL, City Council will consider a proposed ordinance that would] mandate solar for new homes…[The push for it came from University of Miami student] Delaney Reynolds, founder of the Sink or Swim Project, which tries to raise awareness of sea level rise…The typical new Florida home uses about 12,720 kilowatt-hours of electricity annually. Adding an 8 kilowatt photovoltaic system at $2 per watt, minus the 30 percent federal tax credit, equals an average up-front price for residential solar panels at $11,000…That would lead to a monthly power bill of $11 instead of $125 per month…St. Petersburg [also] has a solar power co-operative set up by the League of Women Voters that offers free membership, and members then pay lower prices…The St. Petersburg ordinance would cover not just new construction but also additions and ‘major roof repairs’…” click here for more
